Special counsel Robert Mueller claims the discovery of evidence in the case against President Donald Trump's longtime adviser Roger Stone is both "voluminous and complex," a court filing submitted Thursday reportedly shows.

The filing, posted by Axios, argues the case against Stone outweighs "the interest of the public and defendant in a speedy trial."

"[T]he government intends to begin providing defense counsel with discovery," the filing states.

"This discovery in both voluminous and complex," the filing stated. "It is composed of multiple hard drives containing several terabytes of information consisting of, among other things, FBI case reports, search warrant applications and results (e.g., Apple iCloud accounts and email accounts), bank, and financial records, and the contents of numerous physical devices (e.g., cellular phones, computers, and hard drives).

"The communications contained in the iCloud accounts, email accounts, and physical devices span several years. The government also intends to produce to the defense the contents of physical devices recently seized from his home, apartment, and office. Those devices are currently undergoing a filter review by the FBI for potentially privileged communications."

Stone is accused in a seven-count indictment of witness tampering, obstruction and false statements about his interactions related to the release by WikiLeaks of hacked emails during the 2016 presidential election. Some of those false statements were made to the House intelligence committee, according to the indictment.

Stone and his supporters have claimed Mueller's indictments are politically motivated and simply allege "process crimes," Axios noted, adding however, the breadth of the evidence collected seems to suggest Mueller has not yet tipped his hand.
